Home Survey Tour and Checklist
Your house or apartment most likely includes some existing safety issues and many opportunities for adaptation that will help you feel more at home. This survey is designed to help you identify those issues and opportunities. Many of the concepts presented here may be new to you, so you may wish to review the general and room-by-room tips to get an idea of the kinds of changes you can make in your home. When you’re ready, grab a pen and paper, and a friend or family member if necessary, to take this home survey. You’ll find the house survey here; if you live in an apartment building or complex, use this survey.
